History of asthma. Congestion of sinus, tenderness in nostril, blocked nostril, yellow mucus. Cause?

I am a 42 year old female with a past significant history of asthma. My enviromental allergies are negligible. For the past 3 1/2 months, I have been had significant congestion of my left sinus. I have been experiencing tenderness to palpation along my left nostril extending to my forehead. I have had my left nostril blocked with a thick mucous that is a dark yellowish to brown colour. I have not had any postnasal drip. My right nostril is clear and I can feel the passage of air. I have tried 2 different types of antibiotics and steroidal nasal sprays. I have a very nasal intonation. I have no resolve. Please advise on the possible causes and relief strategies.
Thank you.

Hi,
From your history it seems that you might be having chronic sinusitis.
Due to collection of inflammatory exudate in sinuses you get this problem.
Go for x-ray PNS (para nasal sinuses ).
Consult ENT and get examined.
Do Vicks vapor inhalation.
Avoid cold drinks and junk food.
Ok and take care.
